Cotton Gin at Irwinville

Arthur Rothstein/Library of Congress. (September 1935)

The craftsmanship in this old Lummus gin is amazing. South Georgia was still holding onto cotton as its chief crop, but by the late 1930s, agricultural diversity was a fact of life, and many farmers were learning the ropes with other crops.
